Vintage Santa

Good morning, good morning.. Huge apologies for my lack of posts but there has been lots going on on the craft room and I am hopeful that this week will be a better week than the last few as they have relentless with bad luck....

So..... Let's start with some happy news... A lovely lady called Anet recently left a comment on my blog asking me if I would be interested in joining a new DT Team... How lovely.... Although I have made a decision to cut back on my DT's,  having visited the Challenge site I decided it would be a lovely place to play and hopefully you will join in too...

So without further ado I am extremely proud to tell you that I am now a DT Member for "Creative Craft Cottage"... We are a fortnightly challenge, falling on the 7th and 21st of each month...

Creative Craft Cottage

So onto our new challenge and the theme this fortnight is "Spots and Stripes" and we are sponsored by the talented Rick St dennis ....

I used the stunning "Santa Naps"

I've used a poinsettia die to make in contrasting papers and card... The paper is matted on to kraft card... I coloured the image in Promarkers...

I have joined in at the following challenges:
Simply Papercraft - Anything Goes (Fortnightly ends 3rd July)
Simply Create Too - Vintage (Fortnightly ends 2nd July)
Crimbo Crackers - Vintage (Fortnightly ends 2nd July)
ABC Christmas - L for Lyrics - Santa Baby (Weekly 23rd July)

As  always, thanks for dropping by,
